Emily is really really getting into sewing. Specifically hand sewing with felt. With my good expensive wool felt. But I don't mind because she is doing such a good job!
My friend Deana sent us the book Little Birds (amazon) out of the blue and Emily immediately started flipping through it and landed on this Little Round bluebird below. We had been talking about her making her own pin cushion for her sewing box (see last picture) and somehow it was decided that this bluebird should be made into a Quack from one the girls favorite T.V. shows when they were younger, Peep and the Big Wide World.
We copied the pattern at a reduced % and I made a pattern for the feet/hat/mouth. Emily cut every thing out and sewed it together. She's at the point where she doesn't need much direction from me. It's awesome! Kelly made the girls these awesome stuffed ones years ago.
Here she is sewing an Orca whale. I'll post pictures of that soon. She has made an orca, dolphin, dog and this pin cushion.
Above is her very own sewing box from the store Tuesday Morning.
